Chocolate Week!

Filed in Blog, Event Details by on 7th October 2012 0 Comments • views: 1364

This weeks sees the launch of chocolate week and we are really excited.

More so than usual! Believe it or not, it has been 10 months since we closed our shop on Hanover Street in Liverpool. It was a tough and sad decision, but nonetheless a necessary one. I feel that this Chocolate Week is a celebration of the past 10 months and the way we have become a much more dynamic, flexible and proactive business.

We have been working hard out there with workshops, local eateries and delis, and farmers markets and we feel that this chocolate week we have a new identity to celebrate.  We have made new partnerships and have enjoyed being out there seeing our lovely customers.

Our key events for the celebration of chocolate week are at Croxteth Hall on 10th October – a chocolate tasting, and at Wirral Farmers Market on 13th October with a chance to “Celebrate Chocolate”. We are inviting people to come and build a chocolate sculpture with us 🙂

This is the second time we are attempting a chocolate sculpture in public. The first time was a little bit difficult as it was on a very very hot day in a marquee  (we still had fun with chocolate).

Here’s at least one person hoping that the 13th will be cold! Hope you’ll be coming along to help!

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Last week we took part in an instagram challenge for #justacard. This was a campaign which highlighted the fact that every tiny purchase makes a difference to small businesses. The title of the campaign was inspired by a quote from an independent gallery owner after the closure of their gallery. “If everyone who’d complimented our […]
